. that's just a callousness. and also dovetails with romney's position on fema during the primaries where you're saying we don't need this, private companies can do it, states can do it. if you're out there saying -- giving the impression people handing out soup cans can solve a problem of this magnitude that's also a problem for you as well. >> i think that's right. underscores the point that a big storm actually requires some big government. you know, i think that's a very difficult position to be in for romney right now. >> and also the republican party, big government has been vilified in large part. talk about chris christie, first of all, christie has -- i don't think anybody here would want to shortchange the magnitude of the task at hand as far as new jersey and what they've seen in terms of damage and the victims in the state. but in terms of christie's almost zealous support for the the and his actions are you surprised by that? >> no. if you look at the poll numbers and see obama up 11 points in new jersey, it's math on christie's part. the government will be depended on for a
, the mayor and the sheriffs and the police, fema is not here yet, they have to still put their stuff out there, this say local people helping local people. >> so, anderson, we'll keep an eye on this, seaside heights, new jersey, and toms river, new jersey, which i know michael holmes is there. he's talking to police there and they say least 100 people or so need rescuing as well. >> brooke, chad, we'll continue to check in with you. we'll talk to the mayor of asbury parks to see what kind of damage was there. we'll talk to him and see what daylight has brought. we'll be right back. you see us, at the start of the day. on the company phone list at's a few names longer. you see us bank on busier highways. on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back pain surprises him. morning starts in high spirits,
are. you hear, don't pol itisize thi. i want to listen to candidate romney talking about fema during a presidential debate. this is the key moment we all want to here. new studio. we don't have it this morning. i will read a bit of it. when he was asked about fema, mr. romney said absolutely every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the
better than anybody about fema and about the red cross. is he going to tell us about that at the bottom of the hour. in the meantime three days before we do the final voting, election day just three days away, the candidates are out in the battleground states. we're going to talk about that one thing that the obama campaign has not talked about, even though members of fox news team have tried to get him on the record, mr. president, what did you know about what happened in benghazi, libya on september the 11th, 2012? people aren't asking that. we're asking. we're not getting any answers. but today we have got another smoking gun because the white house before had said, you know, we didn't really have any real warnings of trouble there another smoking gun. more warnings. >> gretchen: apparently they even talked to suspending operations completely at the consulate. you know there were two locations in benghazi. hut consulate and then you had the cia operation house which people, i guess, didn't know was a cia operation house which is about a mile away. and they were talking and in the day
that effort. let me go to david connorn. it seems to me that fema, there was a judgment made way back when in the '70s that government needs to be united. one focus by one man or woman, this guy, fugate's got to be good. you need like a baseball team, you need a manager, somebody to call the shots. >> and we see with more extreme weather happening in the last few years, it's more necessary to have a national, federalized approach, particularly in the planning and in the research, and tracking storms. that can't be done by 50 different states. i thought the president today was very smart when he spoke up in new jersey with governor christie. he thanked the congressional delegate for voting for fema funds. something that, of course, mitt romney -- >> well, anybody -- here's where it happens. the president this morning toured that devastation down in jersey with governor chris christie. afterwards, they had some kind words for each other. let's watch. >> pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately to help get us those things while we were in the car riding together. so i want
were killed during a storm in new york city and a new jersey. , and security secretary and fema deputy administrator richard will be in a staten island, new york today. we are talking about the presidential battleground and non-swing states. we will go to john in saratoga springs, new york, on our line for independents. caller: good morning. i want to make three points. one is the electoral college cost to go. i mean, we have two parties but control everything. they divvy up the districts, now the states. and i mean, it has been four or five election cycles and pretty much know who the red and blue are. and they are spending billions of dollars on a seven or eight states or what ever to win. real democracy -- it should be one of vote for one person. and the bottom line is the winner. there should be more than two parties. we have to break up this party situation. there should be free, four, five people debating. -- three, four, five people a debating. one a day he is for cap and is against it.he isn't agains he was for abortion and now he is against it. in new york, there is no way he
's the message he keeps conveying. and i should say also praising his fema director who has also gotten some praise from governor christie as well, wolf. >> governor christie has been very fusive in his phrase. as they head toward the microphones let's take a quick, quick break. on the other side we'll hear from the president. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my way into the venue, the candidate will be rehearsing off of his phone. [ candidate ] and thanks to every young face i see out there. [ woman ] his phone is one of his biggest supporters.

say that the same federal government that controls fema that can't preposition gasoline trucks near service station and preposition bottles and mres is the same federal government that wants to control your healthcare. if they can't hand out water bottles on time and properly how do they handle hip replacement surgery? we are watching the incompetentence of the federal government on display. >> sean: you know ohio. i there was with you in 2000 and 2004 and 2006 you have predicted with pinpoint accuracy what has happened in that state. a month ago, maybe it was two months ago you told me barack obama was going to win, ohio. you said that things have now changed dramatically in the swing state of ohio. where do you stand tonight, sir? >> sean hannity, this state has flipped from the blue column not red column for three reasons. number one, secretary of state john houston in columbus would tell you that there is 220,000 fewer he democratic votes in early voting and 30,000 more republican votes. that means there is a 250,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008.
as quickly as possible. before the storm hit, fema pre- staged emergency response teams from north carolina to maine, and deployed resources like food, water, and generators up and down the coast. as the storm passed, thousands of fema personnel were on the ground responding to those in need. and by midweek, the department of defense was ready to fly in cargo planes that could be loaded with trucks and equipment to help local power companies get up and running faster. but recovery will be a long, hard road for many communities. there's a lot of work ahead. if you've been directly impacted by this storm and need temporary assistance getting back on your feet, you can call 1-800-621-fema, or apply at disasterassistance.gov. if you know folks who are still without power, please spread the word and let them know. and if you don't live in an affected area and want to help, supporting the red cross is the best and fastest way. this week, we have been humbled by nature's destructive power. but we've been inspired as well. for when the storm was darkest, the heroism of our fellow citizens shone bri
. >> reporter: there's not much for romney to do beyond encouraging supporters to pitch in. with fema working overtime, democrats are hammering him for what he said at a debate when asked if some of fema's responsibilities should be turned over to the states. >> absolutely. any time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> reporter: romney wouldn't answer questions about that. >> governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> reporter: with canceled events, the campaign continues. bill clinton led a rally in indianapolis that appeared entirely political. with a race this close, not even a storm of the century can bring the campaign to a halt. jonathan karl, abc news, kettering, ohio. cover everything. only about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized medicare
to the whole nation, and of course here in my district, he had the director of fema with him. and he said there was to beat no nonsense and we were to cut through the red tape. he gives all telephone numbers to call. and if there was any problem some counties are still doing assessments. a friend committees did their assessment yesterday. we should have -- de front communities did in their assessment yesterday. host: will there be enough funding from fema to cover the damages? what did you think will have to deal with when you return from the lame duck session? guest: that is a question i am getting more frequently. we do not know exactly because we do not know the total number. some think it will only be second to katrina. there will be tens of billions of dollars. we are doing a continual resolution until april 1. whether or not that will be enough remains to be seen. every time there's a disaster on the west coast, an earthquake, a flood and the mississippi, a tornado, we pull together as congress, republicans and democrats and do what has to be done. i do not expect new jersey will be
people without power and most say they have not seen fema or the american red cross. one woman begged for help as governor chuck schumer toured the area. >> we are going to die. with the weather, we are going to die. we are going to freeze. we have 90-year-old people. we are going to die. you don't understand, you have get the trucks here on the corner, now. >> we are trying to get them. >> this is three days. >> staten island borough president said they did show up yesterday and he told anderson cooper that fema will bring more help today. >> someone to speak to, how do i get help? with whom do i get help? how do my children go to school? they don't have a home? this is answers to be answered by government and it is to do for people who can't do for themselves, and no answers forrer that. >> listen, we want to touch base with you tomorrow, and if they don't show up, will you let us know? >> yes. thank you for giving us the publicity that we need. thank you very, very much. god bless you. >> cnn's brian thompson in statten island this morning. do you see fema anywhere around? >> carol
, and schools. trucks full of supplies and fema disaster teams are now on the ground in staten island. many people there say that is all that they have got. our brian todd is hearing stories today. watching help arrive. all he's folks. brian, first of all, tell us about the supplies, about the crews and the complaints here. it seems like this is a very difficult situation for folks. >> it is very difficult, suzanne. still very difficult. yesterday when we came here, this place was like a war zone. it looked like a shelled out just bombed out neighborhood. scenes like this behind me are all over the place, and make no mistake, it is still a very devastated scene. you do get a sense that all this morning that this neighborhood is coming back to life. people all over the streets. you have a family digging out there that's trying to dig out some of the remnants of the debris from their home. this church has had just to put everything out on the street that was in its basement. they used this stove, this refrigerator, the chairs here to feed people on sunday. that's all shot because the basement
-800-621-fema and disasterassistance.gov funding is continued to be made available and when we talk about those dollars, this is money that has been direct posited. -- deposited. as the numbers keep going up, they are not dollars that are just approved. with that, in turn it over to charlie with the red cross. >> we want to give you an update on the particular activities in new york and new jersey. i want to would knowledge that i know this is a frustrating time of the people who have been affected by this storm and we want everyone to know we're doing everything possible to provide aid and comfort to thousands and we have had people in place since before the storm made landfall. i do not want to, in any way, diminish the impact of those in other states. the red cross has a large relief operations in new york and new jersey as we learn about what the neighborhoods are that have a need. as power comes back on, awareness is increasing in terms of the areas of need and we're putting plans in place to provide people with food, water, relief supplies, and comfort. a massive feeding effort is underwa
, and you talk about the bipartisanship. we have seen how government has needed to step in by way of fema. romney has, you know, points of view in the primary, drudged up again by him saying fema is not necessary. then we talk about bipartisanship. you're seeing president obama standing right next to what was a number one surrogate for romney. so you know, in the end, has this natural disaster how kind of skewed or changed some of the opinions or sentiments about what romney has been saying about government not working, government being too intrusive? >> nobody's suggesting that governor christy still isn't indorsing and supporting governor romney. clearly, he has and continues to do so. the fact is -- of the matter is we don't want government, we want it to be efficient and positive and working for individuals, not against individuals. so governor romney never said we don't need fema. what he said it was the local and state governmental entities that were the first individuals in in a disaster. that's exactly true. >> let me say this, fredricka. let me say this as a member of the homelan
would have an expedited process with fema, get whatever assistance we needed. he moved an expedited process this morning by declaring new jersey a major disaster area. the eight counties that are receiving an medek louisiana ratioand immediate individual, atlantic, cape may, hudson, excess. middle south momoth, ocean and union. note this list is not final and many other counties will be added as we make a damage assessment. the biggest issues we are facing right now in our most inch packeted counties are search and rescue and restoration of pow every. i want to make up sure that we are getting to new jersey citizens who chose not to evacuate or got caught in floodwaters. our pr priority is to assure the safety and security of every new jersey citizen. our helicopters are in the air as we speak engaging in coastline rescue efforts. our swift water team is positioned in atlantic city and has begun rescue and recovery for hose who remained in atlantic city. teams units from central and south to union beach. middletown, bell mar. madelsquain are beginning rescue april rations. we saw ti
a state of emergency in delaware. i believe that has changed since then in. >> he did, fema and the white house have been terrific to work with, very grateful to them. you know the way it works is they embed themselves, we have fema people at our emergency management agency to make it as seamless as possible, they've done a great job as have the incredible hundreds and thousands of people within delaware, the emergency response community, everybody from the national guard to the red cross volunteers to local law enforcement, state police, department of transportation, natural resources, all of those people have done a great job. >> what does a governor do? were you up all night? >> i was not up all night. i was out all day yesterday up very late the night before, and you know, basically last night on the phone a lot with -- >> at the mansion? >> actually at my house. >> did you lose power? >> we did have power. i was surprised we had power. >> you did have power. >> we did have power, but 40,000 plus people still without power so that's a lot in a state of our size. our population is 900,
in. we need fema to come and place people in housing because you have children who lost everything. you have parents who are devastated, who are sitting in shelters. i was in a hurricane shelter, i.s. 217. i got my son out because i didn't want him to be here in the devastation. >> reporter: and see all of this? >> and see all of this. >> reporter: your neighbors, you were telling me? >> they live in the basement aapartment across the street and they lost everything. everything is gone. >> reporter: and now you are heading to higher ground to stay with family? >> yes, yes, i'm leaving. >> that was cnn's susan candiotti. the weather is another worry since a new storm, not as strong as sandy, i should point out, could blast the northeast with wind and rain next week. two days until election day. here in ohio, many see it as a game of inches. i tag it along as campaigners go door-to-door. the pressure is on for the man who has to certify a winner here in ohio. will ohio's secretary of state sign off on who will be the next president? and is he ready? we'll ask him live next. [music] s
the boats and brought out few hundred people. we have had phenomenal cooperation from the state and fema here and national guard is come category bergen county police with the sheriff's department and emergency management and all of the municipalities in bergen are sending boats and high vehicles to go rescue those people. >> some houses are five-eight feet of water in them. did it just happen immediately that suggest a levee break. >> within 30 minutes. every street. >> steve: people didn't have any warning. >> no, they did not. >> gretchen: jean, keeping us posted on thuation of thee towns in new jersey. >> steve: those are around the meadowland and sports complex in suburban, new york. they say it was too dangerous to take down and that crane dangling from the high rise. >> brian: see how it blew over. >> steve: heather this is a fancy building under construction and the penthouse valleyed at 115 million. >> that's right. 75 stories off of the ground and they can't get it down at this point because last night it was so windy, winds topping 95 miles per hour . 70 stories up there. we'l
brought in food and clothing, but we have to say that since the initial complaints fema has arrive od r the ground in some presence here and the red cross have set up not far from here, and bu bulldozers and city sanitation trucks and one coming down the street now, and they are all buzzing around to clear the debris from the streets. here comes one. but even with all of the activity here, it is still devastation and looks like a war zone. this is the st. george orthodox ch church, and the basement flooded out and one estimate is $100,000 worth of damage, because they had to toss out everything in the basement they use to feed people on sundays. chairs and oven and stove here and refrigerator tossed out. all of the debris, they have had to clear out. they don't know if they will salvage much of the basement. that will give you a feel of the sense of devastation here, ashleigh. you know, people here are just kind of doing what they can to pick up and move on, but it is very slow process. >> the question is slow process, and that is the question as you look to the pictures to the right of
of fema. appreciate your time this morning because i know you're really busy. first of all, tell me a little bit about the relief supplies that you have staggered. i know normally you sort of position them and then you move them in to where they're needed. but as mr. nba just pointed out to us and rob marciano before it's such a wide storm, is that compromising your ability to get close to where you might need to some emergency supplies? >> well, what we did was we sent stuff throughout the region. we began moving generators and water and all kinds of supplies back and friday, saturday, getting them in yesterday, so we're moving stuff. we've also got to remember the private sector is not idle either. they're doing everything to get their stores back open. we have been moving things from outside the area, basically from the carolinas all the way up into the new england states. and as inland as, you know, the west virginia with the blizzard there. pennsylvania, from flooding. so we've been moving stuff. now is time as rick said, people need to be safe so we can get to recovery next. >
on the national insurance program which is part of fema. they paid out $1.28 billion in losses last year from irene making it the fourth costly experienced? >> this is will be worse. three storms. we've never seen anything like this. it's definitely going to be devastating. >> gregg: i was reading forbes, i wish we could put it on o up the scream. beside for potential life and safety, economists are predicting that it will upwards of $55 billion in economic damage? >> yeah, it's hard to tell. we don't really know how it'sng. estimates are all over the place. there is one positive. sectors that desperately need more work, construction workers, electricians, plumbers all the rest, they will be finding more work. so there is some stimulus there, but again it's mainly to the negative. >> gregg: if you are contractor out there, this maybe the silver lining. the other thing, we have seen in past disasters that it dramatically affects unemployment and g.d.p. because those are tied together? >> absolutely. people won't be going to work. as you said, retailers won't be selling, there won't be tax reve
are and what the fema efforts are? there is no doubt in my mind that this death toll will continue to rise, that people are losing their lives as we speak out there, and i wonder if we're going to hear more from the president in terms of an update. >> reporter: i will tell you martha that his events, he had three events yesterday and at all three of those he made clear to start his remarks by giving a quick update, not a long one but a quick update for people in some of these other states where they may not understand how desperate the situation is back on the eastern seaboard. he's done that, and jay carney will likely brief reporters today aboard air force one later today when the president is moving to another state. but you're right, this is something that is important. while the president is resuming the campaigning we are only four days out from an election and people are focused on that there is 0 obviously a lot of attention that need to be focused on what is going on on the ground, martha. martha: in some ways it does feel like the aftermath of september 11th. obviously a very dif
